Default Re: Can I use a Chromoly bike frame?

Chromoly is a good frame material for motorizing. However, I motorized a nice chromoly framed bike and found the vibration and ride quality to be pretty harsh, compared to a frame with tensile steel (tensile is used in inexpensive bikes). Maybe its just me.
Yes, chromo is great for motorizing. Just be prepared to swap to a tensile steel frame if you can't ride under power comfortably.
